Good skimmer, pay attention to instructions By Martin on 7/29/2016

There is a youtube video out there by coralvue. Make sure to watch, and pay attention to the setup instructions. I'd never had an in-sump skimmer before, and this had a lot of good reviews so I rolled the dice. I did fight with it a while to get it broken in but now she's running and pulling good skim. I'd recommend breaking it in with vinegar prior to installing just to shorten the breakin time. That said it's a pretty awesome skimmer.

Very good skimmer. It was pulling skimate within 2 hours of running.
Pretty good unit By Billy on 5/6/2016

Easy to set up. Quiet and pretty powerful. Only issue is that I guess it takes weeks to "break in" new skimmers and it overfills and then sometimes never reaches the top but since I'm still in that breakin period I can't fault this unit. Someone said if you soak it in vinagerfirst you shorten the breakin period.
Good skimmer for the price By Klwheat on 4/22/2016

It's bigger than I expected...but that's what I wanted. I have it in a 90 gallon mixed reef with 30 gallon sump that I feed decently. Took about a week to break in and get it dialed in, but it's skimming great now.

After my skimmer bit the dust I read the reviews on this skimmer and decided it sounded like a good one but boy was I wrong. I have it on a 75 gallon tank with a sump that holds about 15 gallons. I can't get this thing to skim one bit I have had it for about 4 weeks now and I am ready to throw it out the window. I have tried raising it from 8.5" to 6.5" and also raised and lower it inside the skimmers cup nothing seems to work. I know there is plenty to be skimmed out because because my old skimmer was constantly skimming. I rated it 2 stars because it at least turns on.

Once I had it broke in it is doing a great job. Had to raise it up to the correct water level. I used a hard plastic grate cover found in the plumbing department at Lowe's. It cost a little more than the lighting grated recommended but it worked better for my needs and I didn't have to worry about floating problems. It is doing a great job and my water is clear. I have a92 gal. tank.

One of the best skimmers I have owned
Been set up for almost 2 weeks and it has pulled all sorts of skim from my tank.
Easy to set up clean and maintain
Definitely a good skimmer for the price

Had this skimmer 2 weeks now, We think for the money its well worth it. On our 75 its doing a great job. Seems to be well built as well.

I bought this for my 125 gallon mixed reef tank. It worked great from day one. Minimal break in period. This is the first good skimmer I have ever had.
